A lecture delivered by John Yau, June 27, 2002 for the Summer Writing Program at Naropa. Yau's lecture could be titled, How to Look at Art since 1945. In it he explores first Marcel Duchamp and the way in which contemporary art sprouted from his work in two directions: Hermetic and Legible and by extention explores Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. Then back to Pollack and Wallace Berman, then from there, Yau extends further and brings us into a discussion of contemporary artists such as David Reed, Linda Besemen, Nancy Haynes, Catherine Grosse, and Pat Steir. This lecture was originaly presented with slides.
